Celebrating 25 Years of Impact

2024 marks 25 years of community giving through our Foundation. The journey of our growth speaks to the connections and impacts envisioned by our founders.

  • From our beginnings as a $25 million health conversion in 1999,
  • to the thoughtful decision by our visionary founders to expand our mission as a regional community foundation in 2003,
  • to partnerships with five local affiliate foundations in the Central Susquehanna region,
  • to over 350 unique and personalized funds that have distributed over $50 million back into our community for lasting impact.

Through 25 years of evolution and growth, we have seen one constant—you. Our work is only possible in a community where philanthropy is part of our culture. We are excited to celebrate this milestone anniversary with the community this year!
